A. No additional spending money is required. However, if you would like your student to have some additional cash then feel free to send them with money.

Q. I live in Lubbock, instead of staying in the dorm can I take my child to and from camp each day?

A. We allow students to commute back and forth between the camp each night if they registered as a Commuter Camper. Guardians must pick up and drop off campers if they want to commute. 

Q. What does my child need to bring?

A. Essential items vary from camp to camp. After registration you will receive a confirmation packet that will detail all the necessities required for our camps. Please see "Packing List" on the homepage for each camp.
